I have a situation where fabrication steel backing bar needs to be “partially” removed, so that field backing bars can be installed for field erecting. All welds to be CJP and “back gouge” is not possible. Are there any code rules that would prevent the “partial” removal of the shop backing bars?? AWS section 5 is not very clear on this.
